    It is sad. I would have been all over this. Just goes to show people don’t want the job as much anymore.

    He's already asking us to delete his posts and his account. I'm starting to think someone could lose their job over this.

    The comment was a bad comment. Never in any way would i disrespect a fallen brother/sister. I think this scholarship is a great thing. The comment was a indirect shot to a individual who earned the scholarship and bounce from dept to dept before his probation period was up. My apologies to any individual who thought I was disrespecting the cause.
